Written by a well-known teaching academic, this book provides a much-needed analysis of the baby boom generation, and looks at the changing attitudes to and policies in education, work and pensions/retirement. With the baby boom generation born in the 1950s now entering retirement and a third phase of social welfare interventions (pensions), the baby boomers are now attracting some academic and policy attention. Following this generation through each of the stages of the life course, this book provides an illuminating case study of childhood, adulthood and old age. Correlating how life stages are constructed in tandem with changes in the constructions of social policy, this book innovatively provides an engaging approach to the study of social welfare and social policy.
